NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Luke Donald finally made the right putts to get off to a good start. Now the world’s No. 1 player would like to see how far that might take him in the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Donald had a 5-under 66 on Friday at the TPC Boston and wound up one shot behind Troy Matteson. Even though Donald has three wins around the world and 10 finishes in the top 10, he has started slowly. Donald was headed that way again until making three straight par saves on the back nine to keep the momentum.

Also one shot behind were former PGA champion Y.E. Yang, Masters champion Charl Schwartzel.

Phil Mickelson, using a belly putter for the first time, opened with a 70.
